MSP Sex Q&A: What Do You Think about the The Keeper Menstrual Cup?

Question:
Dear Dr. Debby,  I have been using The Keeper  menstrual cup for 15 years. It is the best product since sliced  bread, just an FYI.  I thought I might see it
mentioned on  your site since you are promoting good health for our female parts. Any thoughts on this product?

Answer:
There are a variety of alternatives to tampons and menstrual pads and The Keeper menstrual cup is one of these. Other popular menstrual cups include the Instead cup, the Diva Cup and others. Other women prefer to use menstrual sponges. If you choose to use a reuseable menstrual product (such as certain types of cups, or a sponge) you should learn more about hygiene practices – a very good source of information is The V Book: A Doctor’s Guide to Complete Vulvovaginal Health (available at amazon.com and through many local bookstores).
